The internet was #blessed when Dr. Mike’s Instagram account went viral and let every office worker relive their Grey’s Anatomy fantasies during their 30 minute lunch break. But who is Dr. Mike of the hot doctor Instagram? The second year medical resident took time out of his busy schedule to talk to Bustle earlier this week, and spoiler alert: he is every bit as ridiculously nice as he looks in his pictures. He works in both New York and Miami, and graduated from the New York Institute Of Technology’s College Of Osteopathic Medicine from their seven year program. Basically, he’s been a boss at balancing work and life for years, so it’s no wonder that he can also manage to keep up with the insane viral fame that hit him and his furry sidekick, husky dog Roxy, in the last week.
A lot of what the internet knows about Dr. Mike so far is limited to “his Instagram is both cheaper and more satisfying to stare at than Netflix,” but there is actually a lot more going on behind the scenes. He’s been using the virality of his social media accounts for charity work, health promotion, and to inspire people who are considering entering the medical field themselves. Here are all the things you might not have known about Dr. Mike from his Instagram alone:
1. He Is Incredibly Dedicated To Giving Back
2. He’s A Fashion Icon
3. He Is Also A Fitness Buff, And Slays At Tennis
4. His Dog Roxy Should Basically Your #LifeGoal
